Wine Cork Pumpkin Decor

Well it’s no secret that I love me some wine!  And of course, as any crafter does, I save all my corks because there is always something to do with them, right?  Today I am sharing this really easy and fun wine cork pumpkin project!  Great use of those wine corks and a super cute Fall decoration!

I’m a big fan of using things around my house to create a decor item!  One of my most favorite projects is still this Chrysanthemum Clock made from plastic spoons or this Sunburst Mirror made from a candle holder!  I love people’s reactions when they realize I made it and what I used!  Today let’s pour ourselves a glass of wine and get to crafting!  {wink}

Supplies Needed:

  • 34 Corks
  • Orange Paint
  • Green Scrapbooking Paper
  • Green Washi Tape
  • Thin Craft Wire
  • Raffia
  • Hot Glue Gun/Glue Sticks
  • Newspaper
  • Paper Plate
  • Scissors

Pumpkin 1

I started out by spreading out a sheet of newspaper, then I used a bit of orange paint and dabbed one end of the cork into to the paint.  If it’s on too thick, simply daub the cork down a few times to remove the excess.  Repeat this for all corks.

Lay all the corks out on the newspaper to dry.

While those are drying, I cut a few leaves from some scrapbooking paper/green cardstock.

Thanksgiving Turkey Snack Bags!  Perfect for the Kids Thanksgiving Table!
Do you travel for Thanksgiving or do you stay local?  We are heading up North back to MN this year and I thought these cute treats would be fun to surprise the boys with these turkey snack bags along the way.

For Michael’s Halloween party we filled the gloves with just popcorn as “Spooky Hands” complete with a spider ring on the ring finger.  One was laying the table in a way that resembled the shape of a turkey and I thought “duh!”  How many cute turkey crafts have you seen where you use your child’s hand as a turkey!  I knew I could make them in snack form also!  The colored goldfish were just the ticket!

Supplies Needed for Turkey Snack Bags:

  • Clear Plastic Gloves
  • Popcorn
  • Colored Goldfish Crackers
  • Red & Orange Felt (optional)
  • Googly eyes (optional)
